    My family is looking forward to the castaway cay port adventure. We were wondering if it was possible to bring a portable beach umbrella for our group. We would like to be able to move our beach spot from time to time and not have to limit our location.

    Ahoy Kathy,

    Thank you so much for coming to planDisney with your Disney Cruise Line planning question. I am happy to help you think about your day at Disney Castaway Cay!

    A day at Disney Castaway Cay is one of my absolute favorite days on a Disney cruise. It is such a perfect beach day; with Disney magic all over the island. There are characters to meet and fun to be had. Lunch is even provided for you on the island. It is so easy to get off the ship and be at the beach so quickly and have a wonderful day!

    Part of what makes a day at Disney Castaway Cay so wonderful is that so much is provided for you. There will be towels for you as you disembark the ship. Also, there are beach chairs and umbrellas set up on the beaches all over Disney Castaway Cay. These are available for no charge. You would be able to move about the beaches and find another set of beach chairs and umbrellas whenever you want to, so there is no reason to bring your own beach umbrella!

    That said, I did look at the prohibited items on a Disney Cruise Line list. I suggest that you also read it carefully; however, I do not see beach umbrellas listed as prohibited items. Please note that Disney security can determine other items not on the list as a security or safety risk and not allow them on board; however, beach umbrellas do not appear on this list.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Kathy. Please feel free to sail on back to planDisney if you have any further questions.
